In 1969, stars like Bill Russell, Oscar Robertson and Wilt Chamberlain ruled the hardwood floors of the NBA. It was also the year the adidas professional basketball shoe made its debut. Over 40 years later, adidas is digging deep into its own archives and reviving the classic style known as the Basketball Profi for Fall/Winter 2012. This comfortable and undeniably retro court shoe is constructed from a supple suede leather upper and features the same adidas stripe details and colorway offerings of the original. The shoe will initially be available in August in Germany — keep an eye out for availability from the 43einhalb.
